Woolf's writing seems relevant to the 21st century because women are still, in many places in the world, held down by old conventions and old ways of thinking. Woolf addressed the need for women to have their own time, space and money to become writers; she considered the possibility that woman could be as great in their writing as someone like Shakespeare. She also considers women who do not fit into the "mold" as existing in a dangerous world which people might not approve of. She even suggest that women "who like other women" might not be something to be looked down upon. In most ways, she was ahed of her time.
